    Sorry, I meant "so far I liked it." I still do. I guess that my strength is in the dialogue - well, of course I'm not sure, but what I really like here are your descriptions. I'm a Danish author and I did the impossible last year having my English short stories published by a British publisher.

    Namaste Andrea I am glad that you find some of my writing interesting and I hope you will continue reading my work, some of the stories I have posted date back to when I first began writing fiction. I like to experiment a bit with the structure of my stories and see how things work out, if I like the look and feel of the story as I go along then that's the way I let it flow so I do tent to construct my novels differently then other people. Personally I use UK or Canadian English as I don't care much for the American version of the Language, but it's which ever system works best for you I suppose. I will likely email you in the next few days when I have a bit more time to do so. I hope you do well on the book you're currently writing and I hope I can read some of your material soon.

    You can read a review of my book here: belletrista.com/2012/Issue15/reviews_17...
    and you can read a sample in their November issue.
    I'm wondering: do you know about the rules of formatting? Many publishing houses require a certain formatting and if you don't use that standard formatting, they will not read your work. It's the same in the US and in GB (I don't know about Canada). Movellas doesn't have the right formatting and there is no option for you here, so if you just send your material as it is here, the publisher or the agent will get the impression that you are a "first writer."
    I don't paste stories here because I'm afraid that I cannot sell them if I do. But if you're interested in my stories then look up the link I pasted above here.

    I will definitely look at the link you have posted and get back to you on that. I am aware of the format rules and it does rather bother me that Movellas.com doesn't have proper formatting, maybe that is something they can fix in the future. I always type out my manuscripts in MS Office Word and just paste it on to the site as it is easier and less time consuming than typing directly on the movellas site, especially as I have to go to an internet cafe to go on line. I have chased around a lot of publishers, and have even received some advice from them on improving my work, and had a few semi interested replies (as well as one or two con artists claiming to be or trying to be publishers) but I'm still looking. I'm posting my work on Movellas just to get some exposure as well as feed back from other people, I believe it's better to give people a chance to read and enjoy them rather then have them sit in a drawer were no one will ever see them, if I ever make any money off my writing I will be happy, but more important to me is the feeling I get when I'm writing and story and characters are all coming together in a nice easy flow. Please keep in touch and let me know how you are getting along in your current writing project.
